Hermès: Luxury in luxurious settings
When visiting Beverly Hills, Rodeo Drive is a must destinations for anyone interested in haute couture or luxury. Among the shops, Hermès of Paris is one of my favourites, as their stuff is subtle, very well made, and I've always got excellent service.
This time I visited the shop to buy a mother's day present to my wife. While not being a typical customer in my baggy jeans, one child sleeping in a stroller and another, younger one, trying to escape continuously from the shop -- I still got plenty of attention, and the clerks continued to diligently serve me while I was dashing to the front door and back to the counter.
The store itself is quite huge, and there is a good selection of goods available -- probably there is a lot of rich (and famous) people around to upkeep a constant flow of trade.
